A new Facebook application has been released for Android. But unlike what most people would expect, it was not developed by Facebook itself. Towards the end of October, there were many reports that Facebook would not be dedicating any resources into creating an Android Facebook application based upon the rough relationship between Facebook and Google. Tech-Crunch has the complete story here. In order to create working alternative for the Android OS, a group of self proclaimed geeks calling themselves Next Mobile Web, who have brought us Dial Zero, Phoneflix, and Quikpedia to the iPhone and Blackberry devices, have now brought…

PhoneFusion, a communications solutions provider, which has also brought visual voicemail to the Blackberry, Palm, and Symbian operating systems, has now brought it’s Visual Voicemail application to the T-Mobile G1, and ultimately, the Android OS. The application will be available through the Android Market by the end of this year, indicating that the application itself will be free. Hopefully the application will remain free, even through the release of the paid Android Market. Our Fusion Voicemail Plus application is tremendously popular with our existing customers who wanted iPhone-type functionality on their favorite devices. With the launch of T-Mobile’s G1, the…

Today Aardvark Labs released screen shots of its upcoming Microsoft Exchange client for the Google Android platform that we showed you before.  The screen shots show the various configuration screens and the message viewer.  The data on the message viewer screen shots has been garbled to protect the innocent, since it is live email data. The company hasn’t provided a lot of detail as to the status of the application, but you can see that it appears to be coming along nicely.  God knows that there are a lot of people dying to get their hands on this app. The…

CompanionLink Software have released CompanionLink for Google Android which syncs Outlook, Goldmine, Act!, Notes, Groupwise or Palm Desktop with your Google account. After it’s in your Google account your Android device will sync automatically. This is a godsend for those of us who aren’t already fully in the Google-sphere. Not only do you get your phone synced but you also get a backup of your life  – accessible from any web browser. While average users will be happy, we’re having trouble envisaging the enterprise sector jumping for joy just yet. How many businesses out there are going to risk having…

Yesterday we were notified that a company called Aardvark was working on a Microsoft Exchange client for the Android OS. If you go to the company’s website, you can sign up to participate in its beta program – when it becomes available. For its part, Aardvark promises: Realtime, wireless synchronization of email, calendar, and contacts. The most popular messaging platform will soon be available on the Google Android OS and T-Mobile G1. Public launch begins Q1 of 2009 and our limited beta will commence shortly.

EA mobile has directly released 2 games for Android: Tetris and Monopoly Here & Now. Don’t bother looking for them on the Android Market as EA wants you to pay for them and the Android Market is still only for free apps. Both of the games are available for $7.99 from www.eamobile.com. Tetris is also available from Handango for $9.95 and from Handmark for $7.99, though both of the sites had been charging an absurd $14.95 for it originally. Hopefully, EA will move to the Android Market once Google permits the purchasing of applications in Q1 next year.

Mobile game developer Glu has now made two of its games, Bonsai Bash and Brain Genius2, available for free on the Android Market. While not exactly pushing the limits of the Android platform, the games are fun and are well worth the free download. Gaming on Android obviously won’t really take off untill everyone is able to buy apps from the Android Market in Q1 next year, but the future is looking very bright indeed. For starters the G1 is powered by a snappy Qualcom processor with hardware 3D acceleration, so expect the new games to graphically bash the bonsai…

A quick look at MySpace for Android

Yesterday I started playing around with the new MySpace application for Android. I have to admit, prior to yesterday I had never used MySpace before. I had to create an account (“AndroidAuthority“) for testing, so don’t blame me if I miss the point of some of the MySpace features. In any case, installing the app from the Android Market was painless. In no time I was signed into my new MySpace account and was able to look around. The app lets users view messages, manage friend requests, leave comments for friends, upload photos to their profile, and set their personal…

Handmark opens Android software store

Today Handmark launched its own software store for Android smartphones. I tested out the new shop on a T-Mobile G1 to see how well it worked. When I pulled up the www.Handmark.com website, two things came to mind. 1) It was’t showing me a mobile optimized website. 2) It didn’t realize that I was using an Android phone. I would have expected more than that, to be honest. But perhaps the company expects users to buy from a personal computer. That certainly works since Handmark sends a text message with a download URL to your phone so you don’t have…

If you just received your shiny new T-Mobile G1 today, you might want to head on over to the newly opened Handango Android software shop. The site still looks a bit rough around the edges, with some broken images and the like, but there are already a number of apps available there for purchase. There are currently 17 items available in the store at this particular moment. They range in price from free to $19.95 for the IM+ all-in-one instant messaging client. IM+ seems to support just about every IM platform on the planet: AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, Google Talk, Jabber,…
